miles 102 - 104
It is now on the cliffs round Carbis Bay, again following the railway line all the way, past Porthminster Beach and dropping down to St Ives harbour
St Ives , named after an Irish missionary saint, grew with pilchard fishing and mining, until the coming of the railway in the 1890's made it a popular seaside resort.
Today St Ives is a characterful town, lots of winding streets, and even a branch of the Tate Gallery - the area is also known as an artists colony
